Bickford of Omaha Hickory is an outstanding assisted living community in Omaha, Nebraska. It is within remarkable Douglas County which is part of the Cornhusker State.
Our family of caregivers brings a great love to whatever it is that we do. It’s not only about what we do but how we do it.
Our philosophy of care is based on the foundation of our Bickford Family Tree: It was created to care for our family, devoted to serving yours. Our experience led us to connect with so many other families who were going through similar experiences.
Understanding your core needs allows us to know the pathway we must take to make you happy.
We prepare home-style food because we want the dining experience to feel as though our residents are eating at home. We buy the best ingredients on the market and prepare food to order so that we can maximize the quality of that product.
It may be Bickford Senior Living but it is our residents’ dining room - we are cooking in their home. It’s all about them wanting to come down to the dining room and enjoy a great meal. If they consume the food and enjoy the food, then I think we’ve created happiness.
